Pre Roasted Whole Bean Coffee

I buy a lot of pre roasted whole bean coffee from coffee houses and online. In the summer I home roast my own beans, but in the winter I hibernate and let the roasters do what they do best. I have to admit I love Canada's Planet Bean and also the 454 Horsepower Coffee from Kicking Horse. I like to try just about everything except cat crap coffee or weasel coffee, for that matter.

The main thing to remember when buying pre roasted whole bean coffee is to only buy a weeks worth at a time. If you are buying pre roasted whole bean coffee from the super market ensure it has been vacuum packed and check the date.

We have info of many of the popular (and my favorite) whole bean coffee brands on this site.

If you are new to the world of coffees you should try to get your hands on everything. The best way to do this is to look online for pre roasted ground coffee or join a Coffee of the Month club. There are pagse on this site about coffee tastes, coffee faults and coffee roasts. It's always a good idea to read about what you are supposed to taste before you start. Once you start tasting the good stuff you will never ever go back to regular supermarket coffee or God forbid, instant coffee.

If there's more than one person who drinks coffee in your home my advice is to just think of yourself. Make it the way you like it and the others can either make their own or buy their own coffee maker.
